Somebody needs to check in with Rivers. I'm not sure if he's doing ok. Video takes an unexpected turn.

It really sucks that Morrissey has emerged as everybody's racist Facebook uncle, because his cover of The Pretenders is actually pretty good.

I didn’t realize we had a “general taste” in this thread. We seem to be musically all over the map around here.

I've had Wachenfeldt's "The Interpreter" album on repeat for the last few days. They're a fascinating band, with the lead guy (Thomas von Wachenfeldt) having a PhD in Music and researching "musicology" as a professor at a Swedish university. He's actually released a number of folk and classical albums under his own name, while playing with Wombbath and Entombed. He finally decided to give symphonic black metal a try, and the results are outstanding. It's a truly fantastic album with amazing musicianship.

I may have posted this before somewhere on here but its what Im listening to. I played it for me and my wife a lot. She would always do that twice knock in the air part :) I have tears in my eyes but a smile on my face remembering my little love doing that during this video.

Endearingly silly video. Such a catchy song. I wonder if you can apply to emmigrate to Europe on the basis of wanting to see metal acts more regularly.

they've kept up the quality control these past couple albums (and 25 years since their first album), i am pleased to say. one last.fm user tag for the album was 'symphonic metal' which i thought was funny, but it almost fits some parts.

Can't find my CD (ask your parents), so I'm just streaming it on Youtube:



I'm a huge (see: XL) fan of the Afghan Whigs and I've been going back through their older stuff over the last few weeks. This album from 1996 is (I think) their best. Created after a failed attempt to write a noir film, the material was reformed into this album. I'm not sure if it's technically a concept album, but the music and lyrics compliment one another perfectly. The greasy, dimly-lit cigarette smoke filled atmosphere just bleeds through the speaker.

Anyway, the final three songs of the album (Bulletproof / Summer's Kiss / Faded) might be some of the greatest music I've ever heard. I've mentioned it here before - I love so many bands, but I don't know of a single band like the Afghan Whigs.

Most metal covers that come to mind adhere too closely to the original track. But this blackened death Taiwanese folk metal cover of Judas Priest's Painkiller is obscenely awesome.

Chthonic - Painkiller (Judas Priest cover)

I like Chthonic. I like death metal. I like "Painkiller". But I do not like that cover at all. :naughty:

Today has absolutely sucked donkey balls so far, so I think some funeral doom will fit the mood.

Lol... It's a very "busy" cover... but I like how it diverges from the original while still being recognizable during the verses/chorus.

I'm listening to Kalmah trying to decide whether I want to go see them and Vreid next month. I'm not really a fan, I just love Moon of My Nights. If I recall correctly it's one of the songs that got me back into metal. I need to go to more metal concerts before my body starts to get old or I move out of the city.... And I figure it's rare to see these guys in North America.



At first listen, The World of Rage from their latest album is pretty catchy too....

I really liked Kalmah’s “Seventh Swamphony” album, but nothing else really clicked with me.

Seen them three times on the cruise, and they put on a decent show. The singer likes to tell jokes in very broken English, then laugh like it’s the funniest thing in the world...even though not single person in the crowd knows what the hell he just said. It’s very amusing.

This album came out of nowhere, with a glowing review on Angry Metal Guy. It's much more prog than metal though, and I'm really liking it so far.

Yeah, I'm digging it more and more the further I listen to it! The instrumentation is really engaging even beyond the hooks, specifically the lead guitar and drums.

I'm enjoying continuing to explore power metal, especially the heavier bands (i.e. blast beats and stuff that's at the speed metal end of the spectrum). I like the combination of its generally brighter tone and breakneck cadence.

Manticora - Keeper of Time - Eternal Champion



I suspect the vocalist's wail could grate on some, but I find it a refreshing departure from most of the vocal styles I've encountered in the genre. He reminds me of someone, but I can't put my finger on it.

The other day I was in the car with my 5 year old and he wanted to listen to music, so I put on the local geriatric rock station. The Santana song "Evil Ways" came on and he said "Daddy! This is my favorite song! It's about ME! I love it!" :lol:

I really tried to like that album, and just couldn't get into it at all.

I've been binge-listening to the original Dragonlance Trilogy audiobooks. It's been a few years, I'd forgotten how much I love that story.

This caught my attention today. I have no idea who she is and I don't tend to track with pop music but I think I'm a fan.
